Inclement Weather Policy

The President or his designee may cancel classes throughout the College or in a certain segment of the College. Though classes may be canceled, employees are expected to report to work or remain at work.

Non-Classified employees, Classified employees and calendar-year faculty who feel that they cannot safely get to their work site or wish to leave work early due to inclement weather conditions, may be excused from work providing they discharge vacation or personal leave or take leave without pay.  Non-Classified employees may also discharge authorized compensatory time.

Designated emergency personnel are required to report to or remain at work during inclement weather conditions.

If the College itself is ever closed, such word will be made public only as part of a general announcement authorized by the Governor, affecting all state employees.  In that event, Classified employees may elect to discharge sick leave as an alternative to discharging vacation or personal leave.  The use of sick leave in this case is limited to a maximum of two (2) sick days per calendar year.
